This is one article in a four-part PLoS Medicine series on water and sanitation. It highlights that by the end of 2010, still 2.6 billion people in the world lack adequate sanitation. While in the past, government agencies have typically built sanitation infrastructure, there is now a larger focus on helping people to improve their own sanitation situation. The article further highlights the many benefits improved sanitation has on health.
